We couldn't use our usual studio room, so we managed to borrow a factory unit for the day and set up in there...

Put this one on at a reasonable size so any one who wants to have a look at the ... umm... lighting... can see it a little better

Model: Lauren Lorretto

Not quite as simple as all that Damansara. The ones closest the background roll are being used as reflectors with no softening. The background exposure is set to 2 stops higher then the exposure from the front lights on the model. On the front lights the right hand one is one stop higher exposure then the left hand one.

Studio work settings are pretty easy if you use a light meter. You basically decide what iso you want to use, for example we used ISO 100 today, enter a reasonable shutter speed although this is largely irrelevant as the flash duration will be far shorter, and you are only using the flash to illuminate the image, we used 125th sec as a speed today. Then set each light individually using the light meter... for example we had the right hand front light to F 11, the left one at F8, and the two back ones started off at F22 but got turned down to F16 as they were getting a bit hot having done approximately 1000 flashes in a 2 hour period!

Camera was left in manual, set at iso 100, 1/125th sec at F11.

What is your background roll made of? i use muslin but it does not look as smooth as the one your useing?

The background roll is made from paper. Smoother then muslin but not as hard wearing. Another (better) alternative is a roll of thin vinyl.

Thank you captivelight will give paper a try first.

I would still recommend the Vinyl... costs about the same as three rolls of paper and lasts much much longer. You can even wipe it clean after use. Both paper and vinyl however come on a big roll, 10 foot long... so make sure that if you need to transport it you can fit it into the car!
